Can I restrict a SharePoint admin from accessing a secure team? #M365AMA

In this episode, the #M365AMA panel discusses the following community question:

“What is the best way to keep security and not allow someone who is a SharePoint admin to add themselves to a “secure” team. I had a few ideas but I wasn’t sure if they were good ideas. Create a separate SharePoint site collection and have that team assigned to the site collection. Find a policy that forces a non site owner to have no read or write permissions to change access. Create a notification rule if a user is added or removed that it notifies the site owner. If anyone has any other ideas please let me know.”
